EP 17 |

Welcome to EP17 of Talkin’ Toowoomba brought to by Southern Queensland Country Tourism. We chat with the CEO Peter Homan about the importance of supporting all the different types of business we have in our own back yard by exploring Toowoomba and our greater region for ourselves. And with restrictions lifting again from last Saturday we spoke to a couple of local cafes that have been able to reopen their doors.
Kingfisher Cafe and Restaurant in Spring St, and The Chocolate Cottage Cafe in Highfields, both who are so glad to be open and trading again.
Please share this podcast, we are all about supporting and building this great community and are proud to be a part of it. it

Apparently, I’m a closet pen lover so I could not go past telling you all about Wednesday the 10th of June
In 1943 the Bíró brothers, László and György, became owners of US Patent 2,390,636 – better known around the world as the ballpoint pen. The Hungarian inventors’ new pen, inspired by the quick-drying inks used by professional printers, was as remarkable as the first fountain pen had been the century before. Ball Point Pen Day celebrates these intrepid inventors, and the often indelible mark they’ve left on the world at large.
